Toy News: Official photos of upcoming Platinum Edition G1 reissues

In the coming year Transformers fans can expect to see reissues of Generation One Transformers on shelves (and online of course) as "Platinum Edition" reissues. The Seeker set is already out at Target and the others are coming soon with the Blaster and Perceptor set to be sold at Target. I believe Trypticon will be a Target reissue as well, but I am not 100% sure on that. This is a great chance to get these toys if you've missed out all these years!
